Lyrics:

Uh oh! Fornication Tonic

It’s just a fornication tonic, she’s rubbin’ my skin. It’s just a fornication tonic, but she won’t let me in.

Cause she’s been running around the town at night in a 2 buck bottle of gin. Squeezing me softly, but not lettin’ me in.

The four horsemen of the apocalypse were cleaning my boots. Pressing my pants. You know, grooming my suits.

Yeah, they were dancin’ around with smiley faces plastered on their skulls; forcing me to force myself upon all her childrens’ dolls.

It’s just a fornication tonic, she’s been changing my style. I don’t think that I want it, at least not for a while.

Cause she’s been laughing at me and all her children’s been jumpin up and down; making me feel bad for acting like a clown.

 

Rhododendron Swordplay

You travelled so far. You travelled so lone. You travelled the road all the way to your home.

You travelled by night. You travelled through the light of your gentleness, not mine. Too vunerable and right all the time.

I went to pick the stars right out of your scars. You’re so careless and free, so strong and always right next to me.

Cause you’re hiding behind those massive brains you sport. You hide behind the stem and the electrons it extorts.

But what about those nuclear fences and what about those magic trenches. They’ll eat you up and they’ll tear you apart, come marching in spitting out your heart.


Young and beautiful

Hello baby, now, would you mind breaking my head against the floor for me. Hello baby, now, would you mind closing the lid and the door for me.                     

Cause you are so beautiful, but just to me. 

And I could come and take you away and we could be together forever. I promise I won’t leave you ever as long as your body sticks together. Cause we are young and beautiful as few. Yeah, we are young and beautiful as few.

Cause you are so beautiful, but just to me.

And we could go dancing in the evening time, you’d be yours and I’d be mine. And we could swing and sway together, fool around in rainy weather. Cause we are young and beautiful as few. Yeah, we are young and beautiful as few.

 

Review Quotes [Danish]:

  • “Helt overordnet er den debuterende Simon Gylden en original af en sangskriver. Han er fandenivoldsk og idérig. I det hele taget så udansk som man kan være i sin tilgang til musikken.. Når han er bedst laver Simon Gylden mirakler.. Verdenklasse simpelthen.” **** Berlingske Tidende
  • “Danmarks svar på Beck: Sangskriveren Simon Gylden har med Bring Your Daddy leveret ét af de seneste års flotteste danske debut album” **** LineOut
  • ”En række atmosfæremættede og vedkommende musikalske udskejelser, der lige så vel kunne være undfanget af en af Becks eller Sparklehorses legekammerater.” ***** Euroman
  • “Bring Your Daddy’ er simpelthen et mindre overflødighedshorn af gode sange og spøjse indfald.. Hvad knægten mangler på bankbogen, har han til gengæld i overflod på bunden af hjernekisten og denne lille perle er en stor sejr for gør det selv-filosofien samt endnu et søm i  ligkisten til den etablerede pladebranches visionsløse udgivelsespolitik.” **** Ekstra Bladet
  • “De store pladeselskaber bør have antennerne ude, for Simon Gylden er med Bring Your Daddy et lille vidunder i dansk undergrundsrock.” **** GAFFA
